Hardik probably gave indications of how it would have been like if India had not lost those three. It was a flat pitch and if Amir hadn't dealt that blow, there was no saying that India would not go over the line.
    Completely agreed. This pitch was not tough to score on and India easily could've made a game of it if not for his first spell.

    For India, the biggest issue for me was that we never learned from our mistakes. Pakistan did and made proactive changes. We kept selecting Ashwin. We didn't even try Rahane once. We keep picking Yuvraj for these tournaments, I am not sure why. I really hope we can build for 2019 now. There are some nice young players who are making a mark and that's a good sign.

    Hope to see

    Rohit
    Dhawan
    KL
    Kohli
    Jadhav
    Pant
    Hardik
    Spinner, maybe Kuldeep
    Bhuvi
    Umesh
    Shami

    for the World Cup.

    The problem with having a bowling attack based on containment is it won't work against a team which is hell bent on winning. To win a big tourney, you need wicket takers. Bumrah, Ashwin, Jadeja have to go imo.

    Ashwin will be back stronger. Love him. Hopefully a bit of break to gain top form and fitness.

    How bad was MS today? Soon as the other batsman got out, he started pinch hitting. Hit a shot, didn't work, promptly got out soon after pinch hitting again.

    You are sold on Jadhav? I am not that sure.

    Bumrah can be a specialist middle overs pace bowler tbf. Bhuvi and Shami should be our opening bowlers and Umesh should be the backup. We also need a decent leggie in the XI.

    Rohit
    Dhawan
    Kohli
    Lokesh
    Pant
    Hardik
    Jadeja
    Kuldeep
    Bhuvi
    Shami
    Bumrah

    Umesh
    Kedar
    Axar
    Kishan

    Should be the 15 man WC squad we should build towards.
    I am proud of this post.

    The thing with Bumrah is that

    a) He could yet be an asset if he sorts out his extras problem. I am not entirely convinced it wasn't a case of big stage nerves that got to him today.

    b) He shouldn't be opening the bowling. He's a third bowler at best, and more suited to the death overs.

    India missed a trick by not playing Shami or Yadav in place of Ashwin. Ashwin's ODI career needs to die.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Looked awful. Almost took the Sheen off the victory. Terrible idea.
